M2M Device Networking : Enabling New Possibilities for Preventive Maintenance

Today, most businesses rely on networks for sharing information among employees and customers. Yet this is only a+ small piece of the information that can be shared. Machines and appliances– essentially any electronic or electro-mechanical device with a sensor, controller or microprocessor – contains a great deal of information about its status, performance and usage.

The ability to extract raw data from a device, machine or appliance and convert that data into useful information transforms the decision-making from an art to a science. You can now leverage Internet, Wi-Fi and Celluar technologies to relay information anywhere, anytime. This unique combination of factors has converged into a powerful new paradigm known as M2M (machine-to-machine, machine-to-man and machine-to-mobile).
